Eric Clapton singles discography Wikipedia
The singles discography of Eric Clapton consists of 24 early career singles that Clapton recorded with various bands and artists including The Yardbirds, John Mayall & the Blues Breakers, Cream, John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band as well as Derek and the Dominos. As a solo artist, Clapton released 91 singles and various promotional formats from 1970 to date. His commercially most successful singles are "Lay Down Sally", "Wonderful Tonight", "Change the World", "Tears in Heaven" and the cover of Bob Marleys "I Shot the Sheriff", released in 1974, that actually outplayed the original release, becoming a Billboard Hot 100 number-one hit. Clapton's best-selling single is "Wonderful Tonight" which has sold more than four million copies worldwide, although he is most known for his rock anthem "Layla", that was originally released in 1971. Clapton later covered the song acoustically for his 1992 "Unplugged" million-seller, and helped to cement Clapton's reputation as both a guitarist and singer. The British rock musician also collaborated with friends along his extensive solo career. Featured singles with artists like Elton John, Sting, Cher, Chrissie Hynde, Neneh Cherry and Zucchero Fornaciari helped to uplift Clapton's single performances.
